You can call this anything you want, but the truth is if you act like a certain person or start thinking a certain way you will eventually become like that. There are so many different explanations for this concept and I’m not going to go over a single one. Instead I am just going to tell you what you need to do and hope that you trust me enough to give it a try. You won’t regret it.
What I like to do sometimes is get into this mode of playing pretend and act like I’m someone that I’m not. I might start thinking a certain way or say certain things. I try to imagine what it would be like to be however it is I am feeling and just sit there locked in that moment. I feel the excitement and joys of being that lucky person who has the thing I want.
An example of this is my writing. I really want to become a famous writer. I love it with a passion. At first I didn’t even know how to write very well. In fact grammar and spelling was my worst subject in school. But I knew what I wanted and I felt like I could get anything if I set my mind to it.
So I set up a desk and a bought myself a laptop computer ( don’t hate on me because I didn’t buy a pencil and paper first, I’m just a tech kind of guy) and set down the write. I tried to make myself feel official by reading books about it. I set there and though about what it would feel like to be a famous author working in his creative mode. Maybe drinking some coffee late at night just typing away. The feelings were strong and joyous. It felt like my calling.
After I got into the mode I pretended that I was a writer. I wrote some little articles and typed up some papers. My mind was starting to think like a writer. Then one day it hit me like a ton of bricks. I read something about blogging and writing on the internet. So I made a blog and started writing self-help articles on this website. It’s been over a year since I started it and I have written almost 300 articles and get about 2,000 visitors per day reading my work.
Now this article wasn’t about my story but to give you a real example of how imagining you are something you aren’t can really work. It worked perfect for me and I’m going the right direction to become a famous writer more so every day. If you can pretend to be someone or have something or think a certain way, whatever it is you want. You will get it. Good Luck!
